Harry couldn't help himself, really. But then, he'd never had a ghost as a tutor before. Actually, he'd never seen a real ghost before coming to live at his uncle's house.

Brown eyes focused obediently on the chalk board, Harry waited his chance. When the ghost finally walked passed him, Harry reached out and brushed its sleeve.

Icy, bone numbing cold gripped his fingers and crept up his arm. With a cry of alarm, Harry snatched his hand back.

"If you had asked, I would have cautioned you," said Hrothbert disdainfully. "Which brings us to today's lesson: Forewarned is forearmed."

Hee! That's so perfectly Harry and Bob. :D

Hadn't thought about it before, but of course Harry would be curious, and I love his planning and Hrothbert's response.

I'm sure Harry's fit to bust with all sorts of questions about ghosts ... but that's another fic. :)

I really liked this a lot.

I like how Harry's still at the stage where he considers Bob as an 'it' instead of a 'him' and is so focused/fascinated at the fact that he's a ghost that he does something that's kind of impolite, really. But it's also totally understandable and feels like something YoungHarry would do.

I really wanted to depict the feel of a moment from very early in their relationship. Thank you for noticing!
